Ed: I think this is a problem caused by some temporary brokenness on
HEAD (we've been doing a lot of moving around of code the last couple
of days).

Can I recommend you try installing with the following
pip-requirements.txt which should be pretty stable (obviously if
you're looking to contribute you'll want to move to HEAD but a working
installation should probably be first!):

-e hg+https://knowledgeforge.net/okfn/vdm@vdm-0.6#egg=vdm
-e hg+https://knowledgeforge.net/okfn/licenses@0.2#egg=licenses
-e hg+https://knowledgeforge.net/ckan/ckanclient/hg@ckanclient-v0.2#egg=ckanclient
-e hg+https://knowledgeforge.net/ckan/hg@metastable#egg=ckan

NB: you will want a reasonably new version of virtualenv (I used
latest) in order to avoid Sean's weird error about setuptools version
being wrong.
